Molly’s Frittata

By Thyme’s Head Chef, Charlie Hibbert


Movie Recommendation: Morning Glory (2010)

A family favourite, a frittata is perfect for brunch, lunch and dinner. 

Serves 2

Prep & cooking time: 20 minutes

Difficulty: easy


4 free-range eggs 

A dash of cream

A knob of butter

Vegetable oil for cooking

2 or 3 leftover boiled potatoes from last night’s supper 

4 leaves of  cavolo nero, stalks  stipped  out and leaves blanched 

½ burrata – snack on the other half with olive oil and salt 

20g freshly grated Parmesan 

Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C (normal) | 200°C (fan) | gas mark 7
  • Dice the potato and fry in an oven-proof pan over medium heat  with a  knob of butter and a teaspoon of vegetable oil.  Tear the  cavolo nero  roughly and add it to the pan.  Beat your eggs  with the cream  and add to the pan.
  • Stir the ingredients briefly and then allow  the egg to begin to  colour  on the bottom: this will take 5 minutes.  Tear the  burrata  and  place the chunks evenly through the  frittata.
  • Place the lot in the oven and allow it to cook for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and scatter over the Parmesan and allow it to cook for a further 8 minutes until the egg is  cooked , and the top has crisped slightly.
  •  Slice and serve.

Movie Recommendation: Morning Glory (2010) 

A romantic comedy starring Rachel McAdams and Harrison Ford as colleagues on a Breakfast  TV show with a  surprisingly  important plot point of a  frittata. This recipe is a quick win, with a pro tip from Harrison himself:  "The key to a good  frittata  is a very hot pan, because that, my  friends, is what makes it… fluffy"
